India’s cricketing hopes rest on the shoulders of Virat Kohli as they aim to secure their third ODI World Cup later this year. Currently participating in the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka, Kohli is one of the most beloved cricketers globally, boasting the highest social media following among all players.
A recent viral behind-the-scenes clip featured Kohli during a promotional shoot. Joining him was the popular figure Shehnaaz Gill, known for her role in Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s recent film, ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’. Shehnaaz gained fame following her appearance on Big Boss 13.

Virat Kohli appeared to thoroughly enjoy the shoot, displaying keen attentiveness while listening to the directors. Shehnaaz, sporting a quirky hairstyle, engaged in captivating stunts while securely harnessed. The video was shared by renowned photographer Viral Bhayani, with speculation suggesting it’s part of a Star Sports ad campaign.
Although Virat and Shehnaaz weren’t captured together in a frame, fans relished seeing them collaborating on a promotional shoot. Virat Kohli made his debut in the World Cup for India in 2011 at the young age of 22.
Former Indian skipper marked his World Cup debut with a century against Bangladesh in Mirpur and continued to make significant contributions throughout the tournament. India ultimately clinched the ODI World Cup, ending a 28-year drought.
This week, India unveiled its 15-member squad for the ODI World Cup 2023. Virat Kohli is the sole player in this lineup who was part of the 2011 World Cup-winning team. The 34-year-old is eager to secure another World Cup victory after experiencing heartbreak in the semi-finals of the 2015 and 2019 editions of the prestigious event.
